Are you looking for something easy and fun to do to a room in your
home...you know...just a little lift...well...here are 25 different ways you can check out and use as a bit of inspiration!
It's all about HOME SWEET HOME on the weekends here so
Style at home has some fabulous quick and easy ideas...but the one that I really love is how they transform a simple, inexpensive white Ikea Tarva dresser into something so special. Imagine this in your color scheme or your creative style...this pink ombre piece would look fabulous just about anywhere and in this little girls room its a perfectly pink fit!
By adding a simple shelf and the addition of stunning brackets...you create a focal point in less than a half an hour. A great place to highlight a collection or favorite pieces...or you can use it as an organization shelf...a place to put mail ...keys and such! With the addition of a piece of art...maybe a mirror...it's gorgeous.
The shelf can be used in so many other places...check out this beauty...an instant end table that you can custom to any look or color...I love the fact that the space under is clear...this would work in so many places and once again...easy and inexpensive.
Perk up the entry to the front or side door in celebration of Spring...customize in your own colors and add a little pizzaz to the great outdoors.
When you just need something and you don't know what...how about a plant...it adds so much to a room...snatch up or make a perfect planter and if you are black thumbed like me...try a succulent ...they look great and need such little care.
If you are more of the gardener type and can actually grow things without killing them...flowering plants add tons of character.
Now talk about fun and easy...simply add your favorite silverware with bonding glue to a metal knob...think of the possibilities...great for the most modern of kitchens to the most vintage of kitchens...possibilities are truly endless!
Or how about some interesting shades on hanging lights?
Maybe something as easy as adding a bit of paint to a chair or a metal table...maybe a little decoupage...just a little something to change things up for next to no cost!
A simple piece becomes so much more with a great paint job and how about adding a complimentary tray and then while you are at it...a chalkboard top...what does that equal? Awesome!
Country Living has so many incredible ideas...this is one of my favorites. Can you believe these are cardboard tubes? You can get the entire diy
and have tons of fun with these...I picture a whole wall of them in a craft room holding fabulous fabrics...yarns...embellishments and so much more...I also think if you took a large one and filled it with cans that have been cleaned and covered and create compartments within a tube would be cool too. Possibilities as always are endless and when you put your spin on it...it will be even better.
Great for kids rooms and just keeping things orderly...but it can be used to house interesting and decorative pieces...
Doesn't get easier or less expensive than this...check it out!
